Plant Identification

Hi, I'm wondering if you can help me identify a couple of plants? The first one is a grass that grows in shady areas. It grows in large clumps with very thick roots. I've attached 2 pictures of it. The second plant was growing in a wooded area. I saw it in the fall. It had hard black berries or seeds. Regards, Mark Larson

What can I do about a severe infestation of spotted wing Drosophila on my raspberries?

I have a severe infestation of spotted wing Drosophila in my raspberries now. I did not know what they were, so I looked online to find what was causing the tiny larvae in the berries. What should I do? Should I abandon the 60 x 10 patch, cut the canes down now, cut the tops off to let the canes grow some more, or start spraying (and with what do I spray?)? The patch has ripe berries, green berries, flowers, and buds. I started picking berries on Sept.1, so the patch is just coming into production. I do not want to harm the bumblebees that pollinate the flowers--I have not seen honeybees for a few years.

Plant Identification

Hi,

Are you able to help me identify the plant in the attached picture? The plants catch on clothing quite easily. The flowers are 4 very small white petals. Their leaves are quite distinctive with 6 narrow leaves across from each other.

Regards,

Mark

Tree bark and roots

I have an old maple tree that is thriving nicely. It has soil and rocks surrounding the base of the trunk. I want to remove it. It is about 2' high. I don't want the tree harmed by this. I looked on- line and saw a product called bark bandage. Is there any product I should use on the trunk after removing the soil surrounding it?
